Pupils have been learning how to operate patrols across kea crossings. Taking part in the school patrol involves members to extend stop signs onto the road in both directions, which signal approaching drivers to stop. Once the traffic is slowing or has stopped, the patrol signals to waiting pedestrians that it’s safe to cross the road. Patrol members undergo a full day’s training, comprising of theory in the classroom followed by practical work on the street. Once qualified, patrollers are given a refresher course after two to three months and stay with the patrol for a minimum of one, and up to three, years.
